Western Michigan (9-0) vs. Kent State (3-6) Game Preview
Date: Tuesday, Nov. 8
Game Time: 7:30 pm
Venue: Dix Stadium, Kent, OH
Seriously, like you have anything else better to do on Tuesday night than watch the team that might be the fun story of the New Year’s Six bowl season.
It’s Western Michigan’s world at the moment at the top of the Group of Five world, but can Kent State possible trip things up and screw up the MAC? The Broncos are looking way too good to blow it how.
The Broncos continue to be unstoppable, rolling up 41 points or more in each of the last six games, coming up with a season-high, at least against the FBS teams, 52 points against a good Ball State team last week, cranking up the offensive balance and being air-tight in almost all areas.
Is Kent State good enough to come up with the shocker?
The offense continues to sputter and cough with no passing game, the nation’s worst attack in terms of total yards, and absolutely no downfield pop whatsoever, but the Golden Flashes can bring the D.
How is the team still alive? It hasn’t allowed more than 256 passing yards all season long, hasn’t given up more than 145 yards in four of the last five games, and it has the ability to come up with lots and lots of takeaways.
Kent State has generated seven turnovers in the last two games and the team is a +8 over the last five games, but there’s one big problem.
Western Michigan is No. 1 in the nation in turnover margin.
The Broncos have yet to lose the turnover margin this season with three – three – turnovers on the year. WMU gave it up three times in the two games before last week’s blowout over Ball State, while no one else in the country has fewer than six.
Western Michigan won’t give Kent State the mistakes needed for the upset as the machine keeps on rolling.
